As soon as I got my FJ and went offroading in it I knew I wanted a way to record my trips. I found the perfect mount by Filmtools called the Gripper Suction Camera Mount. I didn't bring it out to my trip to Holy Jim Trail yesterday morning so I decided to go back tonight to try it out. I got there at around 5:15pm or so just as it began to get dark. I placed the suction on my front windshield with the camera inside pointing out the front. The entire trip it didn't slip once or need to be "re-pumped". I used my Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera for filming since it is very light and records good videos to SD cards. I have an 8 gig card and it seems like it will store over 1 hr.

I recorded my entire run at Holy Jim Trail but it is over 4 gigs so here are a few clips I made. Vimeo videos ended up looking better with the dark quality so here they are:

I could have sworn yesterday this truck didn't have a smashed windshield... today it does.

I cant wait til we can get the military tech for the public. I work on Helos and we have a 365 degree full rotational cam called FLIR camera with optional thermal imaging and it can be controlled with a thumb joystick or eye and head movement, meaning whatever you look at is filmed. they also have an internal shock jolt compensator
Right now the system is about a mil, but it will come down. the original omni night vision was about that price but now it comes standeard in a vidcam for 400 bucks
